Hygiene – Germs are not for sharing

When we talk about the hygiene then the thing first comes to our mind is cleanness, but at the same time this is very unfortunate that majority the people don’t even know the word “Hygiene”

Basically, hygiene is the practice of keeping yourself and your surroundings clean, especially in order to prevent illness or the spread of diseases. We all are hearing about cleanness since our childhood but do we really keep ourselves or our surrounding clean?

All of us know the answer very well, so in order create awareness about hygiene and importance of cleanness. I along with my group mates Burhan and Abdur have started a campaign about Hygiene. It’s a 12-week campaign, which started in the first week of March and will continue by the end of May.

The need for running this campaign is that many of us don’t wash hand before eating anything and most of us don’t use the gloves before doing any unhygienic activity nor we use masks to protect us from pollution. Even majority of us don’t even know the proper way of coughing and sneezing.

The 5 things we’re going to cover in this campaign

  1. Hand wash
  2. Gloves
  3. Mask
  4. Cough
  5. Sneeze

We will create awareness about the above 5 and will tell safety precaution. Up to 80% of the diseases are transmitted by the touch and when we shake hand to someone so we are sharing the germs and diseases. Through this campaign, we will aware that at the time of coughing and sneezing use your elbow instead of your hands. It takes seconds to wash your hands in a proper way, we will create awareness about that as well along with other things which have been mentioned above.

In this campaign, we will conduct seminars, workshops, roadshows, many interactive sessions and will take expert opinions, along with many activities on social media. As it is impossible to neglect the worth of social media, so it is going to play the major role in spreading the awareness of our work.

As our campaign has already started from the first week of March, so since that we have conducted 2 workshops in Musharaf Colony, Hawksbay from which in 1 workshop we received an average response but in 2nd one, we received an overwhelming response.

We have recorded radio ids, and shoot a 1 video for public service message. All the things are timely being shared on social media for keeping our audience up to date. There are so many other things that are scheduled and to be done by the end of May.

At the end of the campaign, if not 100% or 50% so at least 30% of the people will definitely be aware of hygiene and that 30 % will be the multipliers and can increase the percentage up to 100%.
